Splitsville Layout (Square 1 Masterpiece)

I am finishing up my Disney 8x8 album.  Before we go to Disney, I make an autograph album.  As Tanner gets older, he is less interested in standing in line for Character autographs and more interested in riding rides and doing activities.

We also try to do one new activity each time we go and this year we are doing two!!  Riding in a hot air balloon (you can see my Hot Air Balloon page HERE) and going bowling in Downtown Disney at Splitsville.

I used a great product for my titles - Square 1 Masterpiece Repositionable Adhesive Backed Fabric.  This is a very safe alternative to Vinyl (which is full of PVC) and can be printed on, painted, punched and cut!!

You can find out more information or order some of this HERE.

I googled Splitsville and found a photo of the outside of the bowling alley.

I printed it out onto Square 1 Masterpiece Repositionable Adhesive Backed Fabric.  I let the ink dry for a minute or two and trimmed it with my paper cutter.

Here is a close up of the printed photo - it is very vibrant.  I am low on black ink and was worried it would not come out.

I stuck the photo down onto a piece of red carstock.

I used Nifty Fify and my Gypsy to weld the word Splitsville and cut it out with Square 1 (the same sheet that I cut the photo out of).  

I used the same settings as when cutting vinyl (speed 3, pressure 3 and blade 3).

I weeded the extra pieces with my fingers.

I used transfer tape since I wanted the title to be straight.  The "S" was not welded to the rest of the word and I wanted it lined up properly.

I burnished the image and peeled away the transfer tape.

I wanted to add something next to the photo, so I used the Split from Nifty Fifty.  Again, I cut it out of Square 1. 

This time I did not use transfer tape since it was all one piece.

I stuck it down like a sticker.

I did not cut the additional layers....

I used Stickles instead!!

Here is a sneak peek of the photo and dried stickles.

I love this layout!!  I had one piece of this bowling paper left over and I am really a 2-page scrapper.  I cut the paper to two 6x8 pieces and mounted on and 8x8 piece with a black border.  I added the red mats (4.25 x 6.25) for the photos I am sure I will take!!

It will probably be hard to select just two!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!
